12:10pm
isaiah, who is a happy man after the election last tuesday, the dream act passed, you were pushing that. >> right. >> you feel good don't you. >> very much so. i think it states a good position for the state of maryland and also provides a foundation for the nation as a whole. i think it's something that long overdue. we need comprehensive immigration reform. and i think the model that we started in maryland and the overwhelming support and what i now hear and see from congress, i think there's a good opportunity now for us to deal comprehensively with immigration and immigration reform at the national level. >> gambling passed, my goodness. that was controversial. you were pushing r for it. >> it was. but i think it's the right thing when you look at the amount of resources that are leaving maryland going to west virginia, pennsylvania and delaware. we are looking at a half billion dollars a year and all of those things together, west virginia, $200 million alone. we have needs in maryland and our people are going to other places. we need to keep that money
12:11pm
here. i think the citizens spoke is a very controversial matter, and ultimately i think people recognize the gambling is in maryland and we need to manage it and control it in a way that provide the resources in the state of maryland and not other jurisdictions. >> there's new legislation on the table. antismoking legislation, explain that to me. >> the two efforts that are going on, one at the state level where there's an attempt which i'm backing to increase the cigarettes by 1 are dollars per -- 1 dollar per pack to discourage teenagers from smoking, to provide additional resources to help and a variety of things that smoking now obviously affects in terms of health. that's at the state level. at the local level, there's expansion that was sent to eliminate smoking in all places, outdoors and county owned facilities. this is something that i think will be looked upon favorably.
12:12pm
she has developed a good idea and the time now is to move to do it and i think we will do it. >> you're trying to shut it down. no smoking outside buildings. it used to be that you could or still is. now you're saying huh-uh. >> that's right. >> okay. all right. it is always a pleasure to have you. >> thanks for having me. and now we're going to say the forecast will be up in just a moment and he has a four legged friend with him. >> that's right. it's a feline today. we'll meet that animal in a few minutes. when we go to are break. i want to show you temperatures not moving much. still cloudy out here. wind are light. that 7-day forecast, looking ahead to the weekend before thanksgiving. when 9news now returns.

12:17pm
whether we started plowing in the neighborhood, whether the plowing is in process or has been completed. >> they say they have also retrofitted a truck especially for plow plowing the beltways from springfield to the dallas access road. howard is going o to tell us what kind of winter he thinks we're going to have. >> not yet. on tuesday, i'm working on it. we may be able to use that a little bit this season. we have a whole staff of people working on it with me as well so stay tuned coming early next week. weather wise it's cool today without the wind. really light winds, 45, 50 degrees. it's not uncomfortable really when you're out there. here's a look at the day planner. not much sunshine today. maybe a little bit later on this afternoon but these clouds have been hanging tough.
12:18pm
i would call it partly to mostly cloudy, a light north and northeast winds at 5 miles per hour with temperatures in the upper 40s and low 50s for highs. not too much more than where we are right now. you'll notice this evening we're falling back into the middle 40s with northeast winds at generally 3 to 4 miles per hour. partly cloudy to mostly cloudy overnight back in the 30s. satellite and radar, there's no rain falling but look at the clouds, they're hanging tough. we're seeing the back edge of the clouds coming through a little bit in western maryland around here, still cloudy. still cool. not much motion with the temperatures. temperature changed very little since yesterday. still in the same spot in the upper 40s. the actual temp, 39 in winchester, they were in the upper 20s this morning. 50 in cambridge. that is the warm spot. as we look outside on our weather camera, cloudy skies over cc at this hour.
12:19pm
49 degrees. and the humidity standing at 59%. nationally, well, we're looking at shower down in the southeast. look at california, you have a storm here. there's another storm here. so these two storms are going to gang up on the west o coast over the next few days, so probably see news stories with heavy rains and snows. and the clouds continue to blow up to the north off of those showers and that's why we're kind of stuck in the cloudiness right now. i think a little bit later this afternoon we'll get a little bit o bit -- of sun before nighttime occurs. this is underdone with the clouds, but the point i want to make is the showers from north carolina coming into southeast virginia. clouds with us somewhat overnight east of 95 and tomorrow we'll get rid of the clouds and end up being a decent day around here, a little warmer, maybe 54, 55, and again on saturday, another
12:20pm
decent days as high temperatures get back into the mid-50s. tonight 30s, partly to mostly cloudy again. cold spots north and west could be closer to 30 degrees. tomorrow 54 with more sun. saturday still looks mostly sunny and cool. 56. a few more clouds sunday. that coastal storm looks like it's going to stay far enough south and east. 52 sunday, look at next week leading up to thanksgiving, dry and comfortable as temperatures hold into the mid-50s and looks like we're going to have a dry thanksgiving day right now. most of the country looks good for travel leading up to thanksgiving except for the pacific northwest. it is thursday at noon. that means it's pet line thursday. this is sandra with kitty cats. >> yes, this is kitty cat. she's had a hard life. she lived with an elderly woman and the elderly woman died and
12:21pm
she found herself on the porch of another elderly man and he recently passed away, too, and she's a sweet cat, about 7 years old. she's a real lap cat. she needs a quiet home with someone that's going to understand she's an orphan and has had a hard life. >> you were here last week and have a success story. >> yes, lollipop, a person came down and put in an application and said she was going to adopt lollipop. lollipop got a lot of applications but she seemed to be the best match. >> and some people maybe look at other dogs and that helps get them adopted or cats in this case. if someone is interested, this is a shy cat, they can put in an application online under
12:22pm
kitty cat. www.pgsa.com. >> any shows coming up. >> we do. we have one this weekend between 12 and 2 at pet coe up there and they can see all that information online. >> go to our web site, wusa9.com. and kitty cat, we're going to get you a home and we're going to be back with more 9news at noon right after this,
